§ Mr. Ainsley
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether in order to encourage the full exploitation of the nonferrous mining potentialities in Weardale, County Durham, such as are listed in Paper No. 7 delivered in September, 1958. by Professor K. C. Dunham to the In54itate of Mining and Metallurgy, a copy of which has been sent to him, he will consider giving financial aid to the industries concerned.
§ Sir D. Eccles
Weardale is not a D.A.T.A.C. area. The exploitation of these non-ferrous minerals is a matter for private enterprise.
